To improve outcomes for 80,000 students by training teachers & principals.
What we do
As a local leader in teacher development, DIL fills a critical gap in Pakistan’s education system. Through the DIL Teacher Education Center (DTEC), DIL provides quality training for its educators and those from other organizations, following internationally accepted best practices in the field.
Comprehensive Needs Assessment
Through classroom observations, group discussions and information collected from previous training sessions, the master trainers, program managers and school officers together identify the specific training needs.
Training Design and Preparation
Using Pakistan’s national curriculum standards and DIL pedagogical program as a framework, master trainers design principal and teacher training workshops to meet those needs identified by the team.
Application evidence-based teaching methods
Training modules are designed to be interactive, fostering a culture of collaboration with other educators. Participants are encouraged to develop leadership, critical and independent thinking skills. Trainers model best teaching practices as they help principals and teachers build content knowledge and develop student-centered pedagogical skills. Training participants are encouraged to develop leadership, critical and independent thinking skills.
Implementation and Support
Educators who participate in our modules receive post-training observation and coaching to enhance their practice. Scheduled follow-up training sessions are given to further support the teachers and to get their feedback on implementation in the classroom. Information gleaned from these sessions is then used to inform the process for the next year.
